Thank You!
By the way, what software did you use to fix this? I've been looking for a good program for this sync problem.

Actually,this was a file that I already had.Maybe should download the out of sync one to see if could do anything with it.Have a million video processing programs.But I always do the final pass with Virtual Dub.Is free,and almost always very effective.Plus there are hundreds of filters that you can get for it.Most are utterly worthless to me,but a few are very useful.One drawback,is a huge energy hog.

I've had good luck with "MediaCoder" and "Any Video Converter" both free. I used to use "Super", but it crashes on Vista. MediaCoder has a sync tool, but I've never been able to get it to work. I have the out of sync video downloaded and I'll see what I can do with it as time allows.

Got the out of sync file.Wow,that is way off.Tried a couple of things that have worked in the past for syncronization problems.Biggest problem is that it looks like an issue that gets gradually worse as the file goes on,i.e.,isnt off by a set amount throughout the file.If it was,would be a pretty minor nuisance.As it looks,dont know what if anything can be done to fix it.What did you use to encode it? One last thing,I never encode anything to MP4 or Quicktime format,have experimented with those,and have had problems with them.Although the video quality looks very good.Have always gone with XVID.

Great job. I admit it's not one of the best "Tales", but it's "live television" and for me that always great fun to watch. Besides, since it had be uploaded it's good to have it in watchable condition. Thanks again.

You're certainly welcome.Isnt a bad show,but this episode hardly stands out.By the way,checked on Science Fiction Theater,looks to me like they are copywrited.Was running the idea up the flagpole of uploading a couple of those.But would probably be for nothing,unless a few episodes are public domain.

I really don't care what either of you say; I am just grateful someone put this show in synch. Live TV was the pinnacle of entertainment. It's just good whether the storyline is good or not.
